Pet Cremation Services

Following the loss of a pet, owners are faced with two options: burial or cremation. Cremation is growing rapidly in popularity because of the green revolution and because you may not have a cemetary or yard to bury the pet.

How Pet Cremation Services

works for Dogs and Cats

Pet cremation services are available through virtually every veterinary clinic. This is because if a pet owner decides to euthanize a sick or elderly pet, the animal’s remains are typically left behind.

For pets who pass away at home, pet owners can opt to bring the remains to the crematorium facility on their own or they can opt to bring their pet’s remains to the veterinary clinic. There, the pet’s body will be placed inside a freezer to await collection by the pet cremation service. Some pet crematories will even collect the pet’s remains from the owner’s home.

Grieving pet owners will need to select one of three options when opting to cremate a pet:

Private/Individual pet cremation –

The pet’s remains are cremated privately and the ashes are returned to the pet owner. This pet cremation service usually costs approximately $200. But in some cases the services maybe less depending on your needs.

Group pet cremation

Several pets will be cremated at once, but the ashes are typically kept separate. The ashes are returned to the owner. This second pet cremation option is less expensive, typically costing between $150-$250.

Combined pet cremation –

Several pets will be cremated at once and the ashes combined. The ashes are not returned to the owner. Instead, the ashes are scattered, typically at a memorial park-type area at a nearby pet cemetery. This option is generally the least expensive, costing between $50-$150.

  • Private/Individual pet cremation – The pet’s remains are cremated privately and the ashes are returned to the pet owner. This pet cremation service usually costs approximately $300.
  • Group pet cremation – Several pets will be cremated at once, but the ashes are typically kept separate. The ashes are returned to the owner. This second pet cremation option is less expensive, typically costing between $150-$250.
  • Combined pet cremation – Several pets will be cremated at once and the ashes combined. This option is generally the least expensive, costing between $50-$150.
